Pearls, Pearls, Poses & Pearls...

When I saw a couple of blogs featuring this joint venture of *SiSSi* string pearls and Glitterati poses I just knew I had to buy some. I am always on the look out for new, unusual poses, so these caught my eye.

I did go a little mad and buy the fat pack of each, as jewellery and poses are sold separately. Six poses each with their own set of pearls, when combining the two purchases. To accommodate the poses each set of pearls comes in 3 or 4 strings so that you can modify and link them to the size of your avatar. Having an Amazonian avatar, as Sam keeps reminding me, I tweaked a fair bit until I was happy. For this shoot, I even tinted them a dark grey to give a black pearl effect.

Now, yet again…I am going to sing the praises of a creator/designer. Having unpacked all 6 sets and organised them, I successfully tweaked 5 sets of the pearls. The sixth set I found to be ‘no modify’ which was very frustrating. I contacted Sissi String to gain advice. She in turn spent time and energy trying to correct what was, in all accounts, an inworld glitch. I believe 3 times she resent that set of pearls and twice the same outcome. Eventually she succeeded in sending a modify version and I got to play…lol.

Thank you Sissi for you help, time and patience. You are a star and I wish everyone were as kind and considerate as you were in replying to my query. Her customer service was outstanding.

These pearls and their poses are great fun and I just had to share them with you. Go get them now!
